'caucus'in', LMAO, that's funny stuff man. Went out of town last Wed, and just got back last night. Not finished yet, although I did dry fit the bars last night. Man, she's gonna look mean now. I ordered a braided front brake line, and now it seems I am going to have to buy new grips as the left one was glued on at the dealership and I can't get it off. Starting the new job today, so I'll probably buy everything I need and finish it next weekend. I'm taking some progress pics though. 'caucus'in', HAHAHA!

Update. Bars are on. Just waiting for the new grips to arrive, along with the braided crossover line and some other minor goodies, and she's all back together. Went ahead and changed all the lines to braided while I had it apart too. It's coming together. Been taking shots along the way. Will post when I get developed.

Red face It's about freaking time !!

Well I guess since it's cold up there, and you can't ride, you might as well not get in a hurry. But....if you lived here you would have to get with the program dude. I went for a ride today, really nice & sunny and about 65 or so. Lot's of bikes out today....wish you coulda been here.....oh, and the only thing really cold was the Shiner Boch ....looking forward to the pics. I was gonna post some of mine but it keeps telling me they are too ******* big !!! I resized them, and it still says the same thing. If I keep making them smaller you won't be able to see them !!!! grrrrrrr, oh well...

Tom..that's a good pic...lol

The last time I remember any snow here on the coast was about 1989....we have warm air coming off of the Gulf of Mexico, that usually keeps us from getting any of the white stuff. Hang in there, it will be spring before you know it, and you will be riding, and life will be good !!!

Don't remind me about the snow. We got more this last week than we did all winter last year. I rode the bike every month last year, and this year she's been locked up for 3 months. I'm going nuts. It really helps the withdrawl having the bike in pieces. Then you know you couldn't ride it if you wanted to anyhow. Just waiting on some parts then she'll be back together. This weekend I expect. Parts should be in Thursday. I'll get the shots developed soon as well and get those posted.

Love that shot Tom, that's some creative work for sure!!

there's always room for a girlie pic my man. And yes, that's the same Bob that you met FBR. He has a lot of cool trick ideas for the bike. Anyhow, she'll be back together as soon as I raise some more cash for the grips and crossover line. Til then, what you see is where it's at. As far as the haircut goes, unless I'm headed out to see some attractions, no need to Mr Clean IMO. LOL!
